Pantech S150 and U150
Cellphone maker Pantech today added the 150 series of phones to its range. Topping the announcements is the U150 (pictured, left), a slider phone with an iPod-like combination directional and scroll wheel that responds with purple lighting depending on movement. Pantech says it has designed the phone with music in mind and has integrated 1GB of flash memory for storage; the sound itself has received 3D enhancements while the MP3 player software has been upgraded from earlier models.
By contrast, S150 (right) is a style-oriented clamshell phone that shifts attention towards appearance. The phone has received an IF Design award for its textured black shell, Pantech says. Even so, the phone maintains a large external LCD, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and MP3 playback. Mobile broadband is also present. Both it and the U150 will be available soon through the Korean cellular provider SKY. Larger photos are available after the jump courtesy of Akihabara News.
